Recorded this off FM radio while at a party in NYC. Way too much time between tunes in first set due to all the station identifications. But that Eyes of the World..... tight and energetic!!! And with all due respect to the later Touch or Grey's and later Throwing Stones, these 1983 versions were soooo much better with Jerry and the boys still trying to find just right pace and playing them differently every time. On the whole, not a memorable show. Rather, a show with a few very memorable moments.

The work on Estimated and Eyes are the most stellar performances I have ever heard. At one point on eyes Jerry, make the band and audience rise to a new level. If you listen closely, you can here the audience gasp. I have been with them for over 40 years and have a lot of insight.

Subject: Goodnight Irene
Certainly Goodnight Irene was not the break out people were hoping for...maybe my parents were! I have been to 200+ shows, but I am constantly amazed how almost every show is a five. Come on! We all knew that many of the shows were average, although it doesn't mean they weren't a blast to be at. But lets try to rate them accordingly. Just cause it was your first dose at a show doesn't mean it was a 5!!

Reviewer: cb18201 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - January 9, 2009
Subject: what the?
what the hell is Tsaichovsky's 1812 Overture doing in the middle, is it just a recording playing over the house PA or is it actually an orchestra playing during the break? it seems hard to believe there was an actual orchestra there so im guessing it was just played over the PA.
Reviewer: Burnt Rich - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - January 5, 2009
Subject: Whatever.
Sparkling gem from start to finish. The 3rd set is worth 5 stars by itself, but the other 2 sets are by all means not lacking.
Reviewer: Mr. Charlie - Lambertville - favoritefavorite - December 6, 2008
Subject: Rather average unfortunately
I remember this show well.....at least what was worth remembering. Lack luster performance. The civic center is a cavernous mass. At this point expectations for the New Years shows seemed to be at unattainable heights after the recent delights in Oakland.

New Years became a bit of an albatross for the band. This shows sounds like it.
